Recent extensive field prospecting conducted in the Upper Miocene of Lebanon resulted in the discovery of several new fossiliferous localities. One of these, situated in the Zahleh area (Bekaa Valley, central Lebanon) has yielded a particularly diverse vertebrate fauna. Micromammals constitute an important part of this assemblage because not only do they represent the first Neogene rodents and insectivores from Lebanon, but they are also the only ones from the early Late Miocene of the Arabian P...

Abstract A fourth species of the mimarachnid planthoppers and a second species of Dachibangus is described and illustrated base on a well-preserved forewing in mid-Cretaceous amber of northern Myanmar. Dachibangus formosus sp. nov. can be distinguished from the type species Dachibangus trimaculatus Jiang, Szwedo et Wang, 2018 by the size of tegmen and its venation characters. Diagnostic features of the genus Dachibangus are reviewed. Our new discovery further increases the documented palaeodiver...

Fossilized inclusions trapped in amber often display great degrees of conservation for studies concerning their taxonomy, biodiversity and evolution, and in some cases, their ecology and behaviour. Knowledge on the biology of the extinct hemipteran superfamily Protopsyllidioidea is very scarce; the insight on the ecology and behaviour of this group is still lacking. Fossil protopsyllidioids conserved in amber can be of great value for acquiring such data, and can contribute to the understanding ...

Abstract The generic diagnosis and the description of Postopsyllidium rebeccae Grimaldi, 2003 from Burmese amber are updated, based on new available data: new major characters are recognized, mostly concerning male terminalia and wing venation. Two new species, Postopsyllidium grimaldii sp. nov. and Postopsyllidium burmaticum sp. nov., are herein characterized, described and illustrated from the Cretaceous Burmese amber. This genus is also transferred to the newly created family Postopsyllidiida...

Palaeoentomology started in the Eighteenth century with published papers on the curiosities of insects preserved in fossil resins, specifically in Baltic amber. The beginning of the Nineteenth century witnessed the first attempts to study and describe insects from sedimentary rocks. This discipline then developed during the latter Nineteenth and early Twentieth centuries, and resulted in some major published works and reviews. The last century was a period of relatively slow but continual develo...

Nel et al. (2006) described Myopsocus arthuri from Dominican amber based on a single male specimen. We herein describe the female of this species, give a species diagnosis (missing in the original description) and recognize additional characters. Myopsocus arthuri represents the first and only described fossil in the family Myopsocidae.

Libanoephemera inopinatabranchia gen. and sp. nov. , an ephemeropteran nymph from the Lower Barremian dysodiles of Lebanon, is herein characterized, described, illustrated and assigned to an incertae sedis family. It differs from all known ephemeropteran nymphs and is characterized by hypognathous mouthparts, hind wing pads not covered by fore wing pads, legs with five-segmented tarsi and presence of five pairs of gills on abdominal segments; abdominal segments I and III–V with two-branched gill...

Abstract The recent interest in the Lebanese petroleum potential led to new studies mainly concerning marine petroleum source rocks, without taking in consideration the dysodiles and other associated facies from the Upper Jurassic and the Lower Cretaceous. These organic-rich outcrops of metric thickness (max. 3 m) are of limited lateral extension and often found next to volcanic deposits. Sixty-three samples were collected from 25 different localities, and were subdivided into three facies that ...
